left vs right-handed

I believe it's high time for left and right-handed flyrods...enough of this discrimination.

How many guys call themselves "Lefty" any more?

That is true, but consider that this is ONLY a "problem" when you are left hand cast and hook a fish!

Then it becomes a problem I'd like to have every time I go fishing.

I cannot cast left handed and wish I could. However, I agree that lefties have an advantage because the right side of the river bank (working upstream) is better fished by a lefty.

Look at it this way. Lefties have their rights too.
